Golden Bears Baseball 2023

Let's Play 2 Today !

It's a Great Day for Baseball & It's a Great Day to be a Golden Bear!!!!! OPENING DAY

Let's Play Ball

It's Cold in them there Hills !

One of the biggest challenges that Head Coaches and players find in the game of Baseball at the NAIA level is the fact that the weather in early February in highly unpredictable. The original dates for the opening weekend down in Johnson City, TN were Friday and Saturday. The weather forecast for Friday in the Tennessee Mountains was less than desirable for outdoor baseball (Low of 19) so the slate was moved to Saturday and Sunday. Well into my second decade of Golden Bear Baseball I have come to appreciate just how fluid the schedule becomes, especially early on when all Coaches are jonesing to get live action for their ballclubs. Saturday and Sunday both show ideal weather down in the Tri-Cities area which means that the goal will be to play all of the baseball that can be played!

It's February Now so that means its time for Golden Bears Baseball !

The West Virginia Tech University Golden Bears are set to take to the diamond for the first time this Saturday down in Johnson City, Tennessee with two games at the TVA Credit Union Stadium (Cardinal Park). The team will remain in the area for more action on Sunday with the venue moving over to nearby Dobyns Bennett High School. Skipper Lawrence Nesselrodt is set to begin his 15th season and the helm of the program and will once again be assisted by West Virginia Baseball Legend Joe Goddard. Former Golden Bear player Doug Pollack will also be returning for another season on one of the most experienced staffs in the History of the game of Baseball. If there was ANY doubt to that statement it dissapeared when yet another Baseball Lifer joined the Tech Family in Steve Crossier. Crossier has coached at pretty much every level of the game from High School all the way throough the Show where he spent 12 years instructing players at the top level of the game. Another bit

A great deal of life has taken place over the past four days, enough for atleast 10-12 stories! Some of the names that will be a part of those stories - Travis Knight, Marion Harris, Hagen Giles, Lawrence Nesselrodt and the Bluefield University Cross Country / Track and Field Team (or atleast a portion of it), Aaron Sorkin and Mike Yew. Some of those names will look famillar while others not so much but they all fit into the equation of the past four days. There are three blog / websites that are connected to OneofUs.Care. One of them is the site you are reading and for lack of better termonology I call this one "A Look Inside of My Brain". One of the sites is OneofUs.Care which is the offical site of the Non-Profit Organization that my wife and I founded last year. The second site is called the " Carroll County Sports Report", which is solely dedicated to providing a Positive point of view for all of the Sports teams here in Carroll County, Virginia.
